Pictures were one of the main priorities of our day. My parents did not have a professional photographer at their wedding and having one for our big day was one of their main suggestions. It was important to find someone who could meet our needs of capturing our precious moments. Since day one, Ray made sure we were able to communicate about what was important. I loved that Ray had a second photographer with him and this helped certain moments go much smoother, such as bridal party shots! Ray was able to send us amazing sneak peaks and had our photos ready under 3 weeks! It was helpful to talk ahead of time and let Ray know what pictures were important to us to have. We were so fortunate that the sun came out at Belhurst Castle and Winery and Ray and Casey found inspirations on the porperty to snap fun and beautiful poses. We also lucked out in which Ray has worked with our DJ Chris Washburn which helped our day to be organized as best as possible. These pictures will truly last a lifetime and we are beyond happy to have had Ray and Casey capture #TheWrightLove519

Robyn was the perfect choice to be our wedding photographer. Her rate was affordable, and she was always responsive and helpful. She showed a lot of enthusiasm about our special day, and her personality even fit well with our family as we made some conversation in-between photos of our reception. I wouldn't recommend anyone else!

Chelsea did a really great job, not just with taking photos but also be being a major help the day of the wedding. She helped girls get ready and helped put bouquets together but still managed to take lots of great shots. She also reminded me to drink water all day and to take deep breaths when I started to get overwhelmed getting ready. The only negative I can even say is that it takes a really long time to get photos back. I was supposed to get mine after 8 weeks but it's been over three months and I still don't have the disc, just the photos I had to download from her webpage that she sent me a link to. They are all there and they are great, but I wish I didn't have to download them all to my computer.

Absolutely wonderful! I had a huge list of pictures I wanted taken and she did a great job with getting everyone organized and quickly getting through the list before my ceremony! She had great ideas for pictures of just my husband and I that came out amazing! She was very attentive and organized and made everything go very smoothly on the wedding day. We got married about a week ago so we don’t have all of the pictures yet, but the preview we got had great picture quality and excellent editing! I would recommend her to anyone for any event!

Michelle is a phenomenal photographer and I am so glad I had her do my wedding photography. I would recommend her to anyone looking for the perfect pictures of their special day. She has this amazing eye for detail and original view points that are really hard to come by. When the pictures are more beautiful than the event, you know you picked the right photographer. Thank you so much for making my day absolutely perfect!

Shawn is both a professional and super fun to work with. My husband and I have had the good fortune to work him on several occasions, including for our wedding. The pictures he took of my husband and me are my favorite pictures of us ever, hands down, and every time, the experience was a blast!

I love that they don't do an insane amount of photoshop but rather they do it just enough that the photo doesn't look fake but looks like actually people and like actual places! And they have such amazing and original ideas! They did my engagement photo shoot and my wedding and I'm so excited with how things came out!!!

Danielle was such a warm and kind presence on on my wedding day. She truly captured the joy and happiness of the celebration without be intrusive. Danielle's responsiveness to communication put me at ease while preparing for the wedding, and I truly appreciated her phone call the day before to go over any last minute details. My wedding photographs came incredibly fast, and I appreciated the care in which she took the photos. She was able to take my vision for the wedding photographs and turn it into a reality (not something easy to do, as I found it hard to put my vision into words!). Danielle's prices are extremely fair for the quality of her work and her quick responses to any and all form for communication with her. She is simply phenomenal and anyone would be lucky to work with her. I wish there were more than 5 stars to give Danielle because she truly deserves it. My wedding day would not have been the same without her, and I am so fortunate to have her document my big day.

Good job! My wife and I had him as our photographer for our vow renewal. He knew exactly which photos we wanted and had great shot composition. He was also adaptable. We had some changes that popped up and he handled them with no problem. He also had our pictures available within 24 hours.

Michael Jennings is a wonderful photographer. He offers a comfortable atmosphere and throws some humor in there as well. He is fun and really passionate about photography. He makes his clients feel and look amazing through the lens and captures the essence of the projects he works on perfectly! I couldn't think of a better photographer for your next event. He will make you laugh and you will love the photos he produces. He puts a lot of time and effort into making sure that every photo is perfect and that the client is completely satisfied.

    Doreen has taken pictures of my daughter, my dog and my wedding! She caught photos of each occasion that will be moments that can never be replayed but caught in a photo to be remembered forever! My husband and I are truely blessed to know and have Doreen as our photographer. With the pictures of my daughter she took showed details and aspects surrounding my daughter but had a great focus her smile, her wrinkled nose her few teeth everything was brought out in the photos. Doreen helped me with what she may wear that could accent her bright blue eyes and yet to be able to stand out from the nature around her. With the photos of my dog she caught silly moments of him running around and checking out the other farm animals. To catch the moment of curiousity was priceless! The best photos that I am so grateful for was having Doreen as our photographer for our wedding. She set up a check list to ask what I wanted and what I may have forgotten. When the crazy day came she was there and flexiable with accomidating what was occurring and also helped out by organizing other things when my head was in the clouds from the happiness and craziness. Just as the day was ending and all the pictures we agreed upon and many more candid and more, the sun started to set, she was first to notice. The day was suppose to be high winds and hail, having a sunset was a true blessing and to capture that moment with my husband was awesome! I can't not wait to have Doreen take more pictures of my family and maybe some singles of me to feel get my sexy back and give me more self confidence! Because her pictures bring out every beautiful aspect of a person caught at just the right angle!

      I had never even heard of a birth photographer until I started working as a doula and met a photographer who specialized in births. She had some lovely work, but I wasn't sure if it was something that I would want for myself. Then I went to a birth a doula and the couple had hired a birth photographer. I was able to watch her work and noticed that, I actually didn't notice her that much. She stayed in the background and just took pictures as things unfolded. With my recent birth, I was so busy planning a home birth that I didn't really think about hiring a birth photographer initially, but now I am so glad that I had Mariah there. Mariah's Business is Afterglow Exposures www.afterglowexposures.com Just like hiring a wedding photographer, we met with her before the birth and discussed what type of pictures we wanted and things that we didn't want. We discussed our plan for the birth, the where and and who would be there etc. When labor started, I let my midwife know and I let my photographer know as well. I was a little nervous about having someone just watching me while I was in labor, and not just watching me, but watching me with a camera! Everything just worked out so well though. Mariah came when I was far enough along into labor that I was working hard, and I was concentrating on each contraction so much that I didn't even notice her in the room. I didn't feel stared at or watched. Mariah was able to capture some photos that I will always treasure. We have photos of of son's very first breaths, and our first look at him. You can see us falling in love with him in these pictures. I would highly recommend to anyone to consider hiring a birth photographer, it is well worth the investment to remember this special day.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      How much does it cost for a photographer for a wedding?

      Finding the right wedding photographer can make a big difference for your ceremony. Nationally, the average wedding photographer’s price ranges from $800 to $1,000, but costs can be much higher in areas like Chicago, New York or Los Angeles where some couples spend $2,000 to $5,000 or more for the photographer they want. Factors that can affect your wedding photographer prices include the photographer’s reputation and experience. Heavy hitters can command top rates, especially during wedding-season weekends. Day of the week also affects your cost. You may get a $200 discount on wedding photographer prices if you get married on a Friday in November rather than a Saturday in June. Time onsite is also an important cost factor. Hiring a photographer to snap photos from the moment you wake up until after last call at the reception is going to cost more than five hours of pictures during the day. Multiple photographers, special lighting, and videography will also increase your costs. Ultimately you want to find someone who has a style you love and can provide the number of edited shots you want for a price you can handle. Learn more about hiring a wedding photographer.
